KB204 Web interface Design
My inspiration for my design interface.
Taking the design principles of the humble community notice board used in households, offices, school and in communities alike is the hybrid integration of the 2 most practical ways of leaving messages to yourself and others. By using a chalkboard as a canvas to write or draw mental reminders and a cork board as a spread to attach small memos and notes.
This design analogy was utilised to embody the key elements of my website interface. Chalkboard represents the graphical representation of the locative map while the cork board represents the feed where requests are fielded and displayed.
Like the very familiar interface we use everyday, there is a design metaphor that was adopted to represent how we organise and find files and folders on our desktop computer. The interface has since evolved to a more simplified and aesthetic form, however the initial analogy still holds true.
